Germany vs France predictions: France primed to add to German woes
- France are on a five-match winning streak
- Germany are without a win in their last six meetings with France
- Recommended bet: France to win
Germany begin life after Hansi Flick when they face France at Signal-Iduna-Park in a glamour international friendly on Tuesday night.
After a 4-1 friendly defeat at the hands of Japan on Saturday, Flick became the first Germany manager to be sacked since the role was created back in 1926.
Rudi Voller will be in charge on a temporary basis and he has a tough start against a France side that are in fine form ahead of their trip to Dortmund.
After the heavy defeat at the hands of the Japanese, Voller could be tempted to make wholesale changes for the arrival of the French.
Jamal Musiala is a notable absentee for Die Mannschaft, while veteran keeper Manuel Neuer’s international future now looks to be in doubt.
Leon Goretzka, David Raum, Matthias Ginter, Thilo Kehrer and Timo Werner were all dropped from the squad following the internationals in June, meaning there does seem to be a lack of attacking threat in this German squad.
Pascal Gross, who has impressed for Brighton in their strong start to the season, could be set to make his first start for Germany on Tuesday night.
France striker Olivier Giroud picked up an ankle injury last time out against the Republic of Ireland and will play no part in Dortmund.
Eduardo Camavinga, William Saliba and Randal Kolo Muani did not start against the Irish in the 2-0 win so will all be pushing to feature against Germany.
Chelsea duo Christopher Nkunku and Wesley Fofana are still sidelined for France.
Germany are without a win in any of their last five games, with four defeats and a draw during that spell.
Die Mannschaft have been conceding goals at an alarming rate, with 13 shipped in that five-game winless run.
In contrast, France are on a five-game winning streak going into this encounter.
Les Bleus are unbeaten in their last six games with Germany, winning four and drawing two.
In the 17 meetings between these nations, France have run out winners on nine occasions, with four wins for Germany and there have been four draws.
These are two sides in contrasting form and France are the ones with the confidence and the winning momentum at present.
It is hard to see where the goals are going to come from for Germany, while Didier Deschamps has an abundance of attacking options at his disposal.
Despite playing away from home, France should be able to add to Germany’s woes and make it three wins on the spin against their European rivals for the second time in Les Bleus’ history.
